On the 1st and 2nd of April, MDS IT d.d. and ABC Accelerator are organizing an exciting hackathon with remarkable prizes. The topic is development of innovative technologies and there are only a 100 spots available. Application deadline is 28 March 2017!
For anyone who wants some thrill during the first weekend of April there is no better place to be than at the MDS IT hackathon, which can be best described as a rollercoaster for the entrepreneurial mind.
MDS IT is a company that has been successfully representing leading brands for many years, and has been present on four innovative fields of business, and for two days they’ll hand over the management of their company to the participants. Their mission? Maximizing MDS IT’s potential, finding new business opportunities and creating the company’s fifth activity, that will complement the current operations in terms of knowledge and skills of employees.
It’s a challenge tailored to daring entrepreneurs paired with technical virtuosos. Everything participants think MDS IT is able to pull off is on the table, and therefore this is one of the most exciting hackathons in Slovenia yet.
In the spirit of innovation MDS IT provided a really unique package of prizes.
The winning team will get €1500 and a part of MDS IT’s profits from 2017 to 2023. They’ll also be able to attend business lunch meetings with MDS IT’s board of directors during this time period and actively contribute to the company’s growth. Besides, they’ll get to meet founders of two successful fast growing young companies Eurosender and Optiprint, the chairman of MDS IT’s supervisory board Mr. Rok Vodnik, and a member of the board and serial entrepreneur Mr. Nik Slavnič. Team members will also receive Podim conference tickets and BorzaPosla.si is giving away premium access for 5 people for entire year.
The 2nd and 3rd placed teams will get €1000 and €500, along with a chance to meet some successful entrepreneurs as well.
There will also be a special prize for the best individual at the hackathon: MDS IT’s stocks in the value of €4000. Considering MDS IT has shares in Eurosender and Optiprint – two very fast growing companies – that’s a very attractive financial investment. But that’s not all! Best individual will be enjoying one weekend driving around in Tesla S, thanks to Avant car d.o.o.
ABC’s team is excited about the upcoming hackathons and it’s prizes. In their belief, it’s the perfect combination to motivate the teams and give MDS IT a chance to discover and work with talented people.
After organizing hackathons for companies like Abanka, Lidl and Petrol, ABC’s team is eager to see what kind of results a hackathon focused directly on innovative technologies will produce.
Everyone who has an innovative idea and would like to challenge the status quo is invited to apply and participate. ABC guarantees fun, thrill and new connections with a chance of shaping the near future of innovative technologies.
